Hey PC Master Race, you know how you laugh at the console wars? Well, you’re getting war as the Epic Games Store clearly has it in for Steam and are picking up exclusive games.
Coffee Stain Studios – the Goat Simulator bunch – have removed the Steam page for the next game, Satisfactory, and have announced it will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Double Damage Games have also announced that Rebel Galaxy Outlaw will be exclusive to Epic for a year.
Team 17 have also joined in the fun but announcing that Genesis Alpha One will not be launching on January 29th on Steam, but will be heading to, you guessed it, the Epic store.
If you’re wondering why developers are heading to Epic, it’s simple. Steam take a 30% cut of the price of a game sold on their store, Epic take just 12%, so the developers/publishers get a lot more money from each sale. That appears to be a very tempting offer, and if the game has been created in Unreal the Epic waive the fee for that as well.
